Don't get me wrong. I was still winning on the site, but you can tell at the time there were far too many coolers than normal. A lot of JJ+ AK+ type of range in late position battles happening at a high frequency. Two players having AK vs AQ and being ace high flop. Person flopping OESD vs a set and picking up a FD on the turn. Not rigged vs any particular player, it was just my opinion that the site was rigged for action to increase the rake and make it a more "fun" experience with so many big hands being dealt.

I play for a living, so you are just making wild assumptions.

I listen to the S4Y podcast and Berkey just talks about bots and collusion on these sites. The rake is insane, but a lot more better opportunities available these days. I haven't played on there in years, so I can't comment personally about the action. Had a friend who was grinding PLO on pokerrrr and there were a bunch of accounts that got banned after some IT person came in and analyzed a bunch of stuff. I'm sure BROS is the same.

matlittle I thought the size down was due to the top pair changing and being better for the IP player. Where a lower card perhaps a Qs 6s 5d - (2d / Td)? Now we would still overbet. I see this often in 3BP as well, where we cbet the flop and then on Ace or king turn we end up using 1/3 pot to make middling pairs JJ-77 indifferent. Where a larger 2/3+ size gives them an easier decision.

49:30 Do you think your tree wanted you to have some compassion for yourself for not recognizing the board has so many combo draws available? AJ4ss-7x Feels like the tree is saying "Idiot look at the board!"

May 19, 2024 | 10:14 p.m.


Being compassionate with yourself if you make a mistake.

Something I struggle with is where I will tell myself (pre session) I am going to use certain heuristics on the turn like only using 50%+ bet size or only betting 8+ out draws. Then in practice I find whenever I am having a losing session I slip back into passivity where I might go 1/3 turn with an over + gutter or I might only call with a flush draw instead of XR. I might cold call in the SB instead of playing 3B or fold. How do you have compassion for yourself when you tell yourself not to do certain things and you still do them anyways?

23:30 another time stamp on AK7ss-Ts where flush completes and solver likes 27% range bet turn.

28:10 86c on K76ss-8s another spot where we 27% range bet almost.

13:45 HJ vs BB AK on KK9J board (above) prefers B33 vs 40:55 CO vs BB K2h Prefers B50 on KK97cc. Does the possible straight make that big of a difference on these turns to switch our sizing scheme?

Is it something to do with just being OOP? In a B-B line IP we should just be using 50%+ size? Then 4 liners or flush completing turns OOP just using B27?

I think this was a great video and I know you did your best to explain a lot of the stuff. Also very appreciative for all the time you spend answering my questions in the comments. I think this video left me even more confused than before. Just went right over my head.

I know several times throughout the video you mentioned the EV difference is the same or less than 1% and when you do your coaching it could just be a character preference whether student is more comfortable with small, medium, or large sizing. Doesn't matter too much as long as you construct proper frequencies.

The graph link works btw, but the stakes is just a white page. Blocked some reason. Mostly wanted to see what the graph looked like. No need to share the stakes unless you want to.

Do you think the tanking redline for 30k hands was a passivity leak / afraid to bluff catch due to monsters under the bed? Afraid to bluff because they keep calling down light? Putting too much money in on earlier streets and folding later streets? What do you think caused the tanking redline before flat lining and then profits starting to recover again?

so I'm resigned to only playing ACR/live

I never thought ACR would be the site to turn to after all the bot allegations. I was debating playing online again as I've been playing live for the last 18 months exclusively. In the past someone tried to hack into my coinbase account, so I would have to get that unlocked or sign up for coinbasepro perhaps in order to have crypto in order to play on ACR.

Crypto is the only deposit method for ACR? Go coinbase > block chain > poker site? Then reverse to cash out? Heard coinbasepro has lower fees as well, so maybe I should just get that set up, not sure if coinbase and coinbasepro are the same.

Previous video on barreling the turn around the 48 min mark I left a comment about using 1/3 on the turn on 4 liners.

This is still something I'm struggling to grasp in this video. After a flop XR we can see solver using a lot of 1/3 turn sizes i.e. AK on KK9J board (13:45). I expected to see more B50+ throughout on the turn. But I'm really struggling on when to use 33% vs 50%+.

I try and convince myself to only use B50+ on turn and river and be more polar, but I keep getting thrown these curve balls where I see solver using 1/3 on the turn again.

Update on graph and stakes?

May 19, 2024 | 12:36 a.m.

1) Mid-low stakes rewards aggressive BRM to escape raketrap at fastest rate (and the reg vs reg edge is too small, so should just concern yourself with getting to 1k where there's still lots of recreational volume as fast as possible)

Are you saying less recs at 200NL / 500NL or 6bb/100 win rate is still less hourly than a 4bb at the next level up?

4) Adding to Marinellis great point earlier in this thread that I overlooked at first: If you don't have other avenues of self expression/passion than poker, you should avoid going too far into risk averse money stacking/bumhunting

Can you CD9K elaborate on this a bit more. Thank you

29:30 3BP OOP PFR BB vs HJ kind of amazing how AA gets to shove this river for 300% pot. I double checked wizard on this one and if you go b33 you are allowed to shove but its like 244% on wizard. And If you choose B20-X- then on the river its using a lot of B150 or B300. I didn't think 1 pair hands were able to shove here for value. But unblocking the bluff catch range makes sense. KQ QJ KT etc.


May 15, 2024 | 1:43 a.m.


SRP IP PFR B125-X-X line. On the river I think our equity is so low that we need to bluff 1/2 pot or OB. I agree the 5 connects with the BB's calling range, but doesn't mean he is going to call right? Maybe we get to value bet a hand like A5 here for a small size and tried to get called by 4x 2x. 53s Ks5s etc.

May 15, 2024 | 1:26 a.m.

20 min T#1 you iso CO 4bb with 55 v HJ limp. Earlier in the video you iso 3bb K7s on the button vs Hj limp. Shouldn't this be the other way around? Iso bigger on the button with positional advantage and less players behind you and iso smaller with more players left to act behind you and less positional advantage? Also just curious why you iso different sizes.

May 15, 2024 | 1:13 a.m.

19:30 another tilting hand to watch.
Preflop hero raises, HJ 3bet, btn cold 4bets. Flop comes and HJ donk bets and btn just folds. Has to be like QQ or JJ right? But why donk bet into the cold 4 bettor? Idk why these hands annoy me so much.

May 15, 2024 | 1:04 a.m.

18min this hand is so far off the rails. I can't make sense of it but makes me not want to play online because its such an action turn card. Entire hand just feels tilting to me. Everything just seems completely backwards by villain.

Villain Limp call preflop. Donk bet 42% flop with no bdfd. 28% turn and then 3bets your turn raise. And checks the river.

On the turn vs a B-B3B line without really any outs to improve I think we should fold the turn right? Some times I'll raise the turn to try and freeze the river from facing a bet, but they just end up playing B-BC-D and destroy me. Curious of your thoughts after the fact because the turn 3bet was pretty much a snap 3bet. Then any time there is a 3bet postflop I mostly only want to continue 2 pair+. If I had aces here I would probably just fold the turn.

May 15, 2024 | 12:55 a.m.

16min T#4 AQc Btn vs CO 4bp very difficult spot, but if you watch it back you can see how your mind shifted from wanting to exploit fold the flop vs the 33% cbet, to wanting to not be exploited on the river and over fold. Krzysztof Slaski you started listing hands like red jacks and red tens as possible bluffs, but it goes against your flop thought process.

This is something I've been trying to clear up in my head as well. Constant battle in my mind from checking because theory checks range to betting because its a passive fish. To using 1/3 cbet because its the correct sizing to sizing up because I want more value or more fold equity. Bluff catching river because theory doesn't fold this hand to wanting to fold everything but hands that dominate their value because they don't bluff often enough. Its really hard to be consistent in our minds with these spots. Just have to trust your gut and have a blue print strategy you stick to so there is less chaos in our minds.

May 15, 2024 | 12:44 a.m.

36:35 I'm a bit surprised to see Jh8x folding on QT3hh board. Also K9s folding unless it has a bdfd with it.

May 14, 2024 | 12:30 a.m.

14min mentioned Dwan raises QTs from EP and that K7s should be a vpip from the Co and 100% from the button. Wizard BTN defense vs LJ 2.5x using cEV. Where these k7s-k2s hands are losing money as calls. These hands are only calls at 200bb+? I'm used to playing a range of 22+ AJ+ KQ+ 9Xs+ 54s+ AXs+. Most hands outside of this range Imo don't do too well without a significant post flop edge.

May 13, 2024 | 11:36 p.m.

Does this look right? Any tips for raise sizes on the river like certain multipliers?

May 13, 2024 | 11:31 p.m.

Patrick Sekinger This is kind of embarrassing for me to share but its a part of my game where I didn't understand the math and wondered if you had any tips for bluff raising. I know its Risk / (Risk + Reward) but I thought a pot size bet (PSB) and a pot size raise (PSR) would be the same percentage for fold equity. :-(

For example if the pot is $100 and we bet $100 as a bluff we need 50% fold equity.

If the pot is $100 and we face a $100 bet, a PSR would be $400, but now we need 67% fold equity.

Any tips for knowing if bluff raising is profitable? I know in a lot of CFP river raises are supposed to be very profitable, but seems to be punts in live games.

I've been trying to bluff raise the river quite a bit recently and its been a little bit of a disaster when the river is not bet thinly enough in the first place.

Maybe I can make a chart for different river raises sizes and fold equity needed for each size.

A video on the "high-low" or "over-under" bluffs as I call them would be interesting. I'm used to seeing them more on rainbow dry boards where there are not a lot of draws to choose from. But you get middling pairs to fold and draws to call. So called by worse and fold out better. But there are no elite videos on these and are often over looked. Not sure if anyone knows how to use them correctly.

May 12, 2024 | 8:13 p.m.

49min you mentioned on KsQd9s-9h that A2c would be a high frequency barrel. I think your mind is heading in the right direction with these types of bluffs, but on boards that don't already have the straight possible because we have more GS type hands to choose from for our bluffs.

If you change the board to KQ88 using the same suits, now A2c will barrel.

48min you gave solver like 50, 70, 133 sizes. Do you not use 33% size on 4 liners?

* 34:35* On QQ32 you mentioned The J9h / T9h combos matching the suit of the turn barrels 70% of the time. I was wondering about the volatility of these hands compared to using a BXB line. I face some very strange lines some times where I'll find these bluffs on the turn and improve to a pair on the river, but then face a 1/3 or 1/2 donk bet. I think I pay off these river donk bets too often. Same thing happens with a lot of JJ-77 combos where I barrel the turn with a plan to check back quite a few rivers, but end up facing a donk bet. I am not sure how to proceed in these situations.

These middling pairs I speak up on the river being 3rd pair and even some TX are indifferent vs this donk bet on wizard, but then again the donk bet shouldn't exist, so run into solver noise.

Just wanted to point out that black box throughout the video blocking the flop texture when looking at PIO is extremely annoying when I can't remember what the board texture is when analyzing the PIO output.

May 9, 2024 | 10:34 p.m.

7:45 I like how you pointed out you block J8d T8d and some AdXd hands and unblock QJs QTs hands that fold. My first inclination was to barrel a suit that is not on the board to unblock the XC XF range. But I guess on paired boards we want to block trips.
